Getting it painted in Calgary?

My trailer seems to get heavily oxidized out here and I'm wondering if it's time for a paint job. Has anyone in the Calgary area had theirs painted? Any suggestions on a shop and idea around cost?

Other than trying to wax it every year, any other suggestions?

Hi Shelley,

I don't know about getting it painted here in Calgary - given how busy bodyshops are and the cost of getting a car painted, I don't know.

However, I am in Calgary too and have a 1985 Bigfoot. It is oxidized and quite dirty, so I am trying the "not poliglow" trick on it (as seen in this thread: http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...ell-43004.html ) using the Zep floor finish from Home Depot. I have been scrubbing the surface with scotchbrite and Pray Nine, then applying the floor polish. It really livens up the trailer! However, I don't know how long it will last, but as others have reported in that thread, they seem to have good luck with it.

I figure compared to the cost of paint, if I can re-apply this stuff every 2-3 year years, it's worth the effort.

Cheers,
Keith

I'm in Lethbridge and I got my 13 boler paint with materials it cost me about 300$ but I did do all the work and spraying myself

I would guess around 800$-1000$ to get it done
If there is no issues

I would recommend using a single stage
More cost effective and very strong

Thanks Keith....I decided to try a polish first and see. I'm actually quite thrilled with the results - saw yours and it looks fabulous too!
